Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Appalling service. They were happy to take the booking but weren’t there when I arrived. After standing at a closed reception for half an hour I eventually had to make a booking elsewhere. Then the owners finally returned my call 45 minutes later to say the were out listening to carols, no apology. When I explained that I had to book somewhere else and wanted my money back, they refused! I had been staying there for years on my way across to Perth and back because the old owners were fabulous. But after 2 bad experiences with these people… never again.

Booked a two room accommodation. Arrived and got sent to the poverty room instead. No privacy for our child or ourselves. Management is a joke.Cars in and out all night. People don't stay there. Worst accommodation I've seen.

Speaking as an award winning AirBnB hostess - what can I say for our 3 night booking? Bugs and mozzies after dark, noisy aircon, neighbours keeping us awake at night, sheets not changed in 3 days, towels not collected or replaced daily which meant damp drying after showers, coffee and tea not topped up at all, shower head faulty, no toiletries for guests....etc. I took the linen to the laundrette and washed it myself just so we could be clean but still felt dirty after staying in that place. Hygience standards are non-existent which could compromised those with ill health and allergies. Need I go on. The best thing the managers could do would be to bulldoze and rebuild. The place does not reflect website photos and the managers had nothing but excuses for our complaints. We left after 2 nights and wrote off the cost. Never again.

The size of the cochroaches & centrepedes that were in tge rooms was enough to put anyone off ! The only good thing about this motel was that we could book in before 2pm as we had an event to go to that started at 11am. Definately will not be back.

Having booked via Wotif (who were extremely unhelpful and unsympathetic), and after advising we would be arriving late after a 3 hour drive, we arrived at 8:50 pm and there was no one at reception (as we had expected) and rang the after hours number, as advised by the hotel, and no answer! We rang nine times between 9:00pm and 10:00pm with no response. We ended up booking elsewhere rather than sleep in car! The hotel advised Wotif that we no showed and did not contact prior to arrival. We have subsequently cancelled future bookings we had at the hotel and with Wotif. I would highly recommend that you avoid this motel and do not use Wotif.

Having driven from Melbourne this was just a one night stopover but ticked all the boxes. A friendly owner checked us in and the room was tidy and clean, a great option for the price. On the edge of town with nothing much around but the motel is tastefully decorated with vines hanging outside rooms. Room had a microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge and crockery available from reception. Would stay again whether passing through or exploring the Barossa.

We booked for 3 nights, great value the room is small but sufficient for a few nights, kettle , microwave and fridge . It’s an older place but our room was lovely and clean the managers are super friendly and you can see they are trying to make a good go at it. I would certainly stay here again when we are in the Barossa , it’s not 5 star but it worked well for us. I would recommend it if you are doing just a couple days. Easy to the freeway to Adelaide , very hot day so they left our aircon running so we didn’t have a hot room. Great spot

Second time I have stayed, last time was in 2017. They have done some minor renovations. The motel is about 2k out of town but is very easy to find. Check-in was easy, very friendly guy was at the reception. The room (#8) was as you would expect for a 60's motel. Everything worked well. The wifi was great. Only complaint, try not to get a room with another one above it. Sadly I could hear them when they went to the loo. But is a great motel, handy to the freeway, would stay again.

We booked this motel online it looked ok We only wanted somewhere clean and tidy Even though the motel room was old and shabby we were ok to keep our booking. What I didn’t expect was bugs crawling over me during the night. Large black and green bugs crawling over me. I was absolutely shaken by the bugs crawling over me. My husband was able to stomp on the bugs I got hardly any sleep during the night I am going to report this incident to the proper authorities Please reconsider if you intend staying at this motel

Response from VKH01, Manager at Barossa Gateway Motel
Responded 23 Oct 2019
Hi Catherine, Thank you for your response. I understand we are not a flashy hotel and we are not going to be to everyone's taste; however, we work hard to run our motel as a clean, comfortable, homely place and we do our best to accommodate everyone as best we can. As part of this, we have the rooms pest sprayed for insects twice a year as recommended. What we don't appreciate is reviews which are extremely misleading. When you checked out, you told me you had a bug (singular) crawling on you and that it disappeared (which your husband confirmed); not "bugs" that you mentioned in your review. There was no evidence of dead, squashed or alive bugs in the room when I inspected it after you left. We also see on our surveillance system that you spent half an hour sitting outside with your door wide open and lights on - which is probably how the "bugs" got in there in the first place. Please keep in mind that we are situated in the country and it was a warm night, bugs tend to be more prevalent on night's like that - by leaving your door open it was inevitable that some may have entered. We also supply insect spray in the rooms, just in case bugs get past the fly screens on the windows or a closed door. Also, upon seeing your other reviews on Trip Advisor, it seems that you are very hard to please. We will be discussing your review with Trip Advisor as it is misleading and fabricated. Sincerely, Management
